Sensata’s newly relocated Michigan Technology Center features expanded lab capabilities and enhanced engineering support for Auto, Aftermarket and HVOR customers
SWINDON, United Kingdom, April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensata Technologies, an industrial technology company and a leading provider of sensors, announced the relocation of its Michigan office from Auburn Hills to Troy. The new technical center, 13 miles from the former location, has almost double the square footage, providing expanded capabilities which include a new engineering test lab, enhanced customer support functions and engineering resources.
This new office will support the growth and future expansion of Sensata’s Automotive, Aftermarket and Heavy Vehicle Off-Road (HVOR) businesses especially as it relates to the megatrends of electrification, autonomy and connectivity.
“With this new space, we can better serve our customers, including top-tier automotive OEMs in the Detroit area, by providing the capabilities for in-house product testing and analysis and rapid prototyping,” said Vineet Nargowala, Senior Vice President, Performance Sensing, Automotive. “The expanded new location will also help drive organic growth initiatives for Sensata within our Automotive Aftermarket and HVOR businesses.”
The new automotive sensor performance lab has expanded its capability beyond failure analysis (FA) to research and development. Sensata engineers can now conduct research, develop prototypes and perform vehicle evaluations close to the Company’s OEM and Tier partners. The lab is also a first response for FA on small development projects, allowing Sensata engineers to quickly develop solutions for customers.
Sensata employees from the primarily Automotive-focused Auburn Hills office first moved to the new building in August 2018. The new location has also tripled the amount of people available to support HVOR customers.
The new Sensata tech center is located at 1960 Research Drive, Suite 100, Troy, MI 48083.
